The Mountain West Conference, which includes University of New Mexico, has canceled its football season this fall, less than a week after it decided to have an 8-conference-game, plus-two-nonconference-game schedule, because of COVID-19 concerns, multiple media outlets reported Monday afternoon.
The MWC also has canceled all fall sports and as did the Mid-American Conference on Saturday. The MAC was the first major conference to cancel its fall sports.
In a vote of league presidents on Monday, the Mountain West decided on an “indefinite postponement” of all of its fall sports and will consider playing football in the spring.
UNM had been working out and training in small groups with no date set for preseason camp under first-year head coach Danny Gonzales, a former Lobo football player and former UNM assistant.
